Obamacare is a disaster and Obama knows it [Letter]

As time marches on, it is getting clearer that Obamacare is a disaster and will eventually fall on its own weight. On November 13, 2012, Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sibelius said that delaying Obamacare is not an option. On Monday, the Obama administration delayed Obamacare requirements for medium-sized employers to offer health insurance to full time workers until 2016. This requirement was already delayed for a year last summer. It is unconstitutional for the president to change laws whenever he feels like it without Congress' approval. The Obama administration is fully aware of the absolute disaster of Obamacare. The main reason President Barack Obama keeps changing the Obamacare law is not to harm the political prospects of the Democratic Party in the 2014 election.

Tens of millions of people are paying more for their health insurance and tens of millions can't see their doctors under Obamacare. Remember the lies from President Obama that you can keep your health plans and you can keep your doctors, period? Last week the Congressional Budget Office announced that the equivalent of 2.3 million fewer people will work because of Obamacare and that 31 million people will still not be insured at the end of implementation. Vast numbers of people can't afford Obamacare unless heavily subsidized. Their income has to be brought down to qualify for subsidy for Obamacare.

In their last gasp of saving Obamacare, the Democratic Party and the administration are trashing work because to them it is unfair that people have to work to get health care. The question is who is going to pay for the subsidy of millions of Americans. The answer is very simple; the working Americans.
